The newest addition to Valencia Street’s culinary revival, Tawla is a stylish, bustling Eastern Mediterranean restaurant, with a well-crafted menu focused on hot and cold meze (an ordering of several small dishes, served as an appetizer, or light meal, generally served with alcoholic beverages). Flavors are strong and addictive. We’d recommend ordering in abundance as to better explore the full spectrum of flavors within this menu.
A winning plan: crunchy fresh bread with spicy Muhamarra spread, tangy fattoush salad, delicious Kibbeh Niyyeh (raw ground lamb with spices), intensely flavored sardines, burnt octopus with bitter mango and charred cauliflower in tahini sauce—a dish sure to turn even the toughest anti-cauliflower diner into a believer.
